Looks great.
However,if you are going to use SLI/CF later or overclock your CPU,then consider a P55 board.
Also if you play at resolutions like 1080p or higher,get the 1GB version of GTX 460 because the extra memory is useful in many titles.

If you're going for gaming, go for the AMD Quad Cores and use the saved money on your power supply if you're going to SLI/CF

True^
Like I mentioned in my first post,consider a more powerful PSU if you want to use SLI/CF later.
For 2 GTX 460s,a good 650W+ PSU is fine.(Like Corsair HX 650)
